UNT now boasts a collaboration with UT-Austin's Texas Advanced Computing Center.

UNT's current capacity in high-performance computing will increase to 125% thanks to the university's collaboration with the University of Texas at Austin's Texas Advanced Computing Center.

"This new collaboration will have extraordinary long-term impacts for research at UNT," says Mark McLellan, vice president of UNT's Division of Research and Innovation. "It creates exciting opportunities for innovative and impactful research outcomes. Working with TACC will allow UNT's research teams to effectively address a range of pressing global challenges."

The TACC has developed some of the world's most powerful computer resources. Under the five-year agreement, UNT faculty and students will have access to TACC's high-performance computing systems under the same conditions as any faculty member at UT Austin.
